Originally released in June 1972, the Eagles' self-titled debut played a significant role in changing the face of mainstream music while setting up a dominant run that's continued for nearly five decades. Produced by Glyn Johns, and home to three massive hits, Eagles established a cleverly restrained, Los Angeles-bred style that would sweep the country and position the group as superstars.
Limited to 7,500 numbered copies, pressed on dead-quiet MoFi SuperVinyl at RTI, and mastered from the original analog master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's ultra-hi-fi UltraDisc One-Step 180g 45 RPM 2LP collector's edition pays tribute to the record's merit and enhances the intimate program for generations to come. Playing with reference-setting sonics that elevate an effort forever been prized by audiophiles, this spectacular version provides a clear, clean, transparent, balanced, and intimate view of an album that permanently made California-style rock a style of its own.
The premium packaging and gorgeous presentation of the UD1S Eagles pressing befit its extremely select status. Housed in a deluxe box, it features special foil-stamped jackets and faithful-to-the-original graphics that illuminate the splendor of the recording. Aurally and visually, this UD1S reissue exists as a curatorial artifact meant to be preserved, touched, and examined. It is made specifically for discerning listeners that prize sound quality and production, and who desire to fully immerse themselves in the art - and everything involved with the album, from the iconic photos to the meticulous finishes.
Speaking of the imagery, the front cover brilliantly captures the fundamentals of the Eagles' aural essence. Photographed at Joshua Tree National Park, it portrays a seemingly endless blue sky arched over the hovering copper glow of a sunset. In the foreground, shadow-bathed cacti hugs a slice of desert, both illuminated by nature above and beyond. Peaceful, easy, breezy, organic, laidback, cohesive, warm yet cool: The picture parallels the tone and timbre of the content lurking in the vinyl grooves, and helps elevate Eagles to that rare place where every single aspect (and participant) is united in theme and purpose.
As just one of two Eagles albums created by the original quartet of Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Randy Meisner, and Bernie Leadon, the record remains unique in the band's history for the shared songwriting and vocal performances. Each member takes the lead on at least one track, extending to Meisner on "Most of Us Are Sad," "Take the Devil," and "Tryin'" as well as Leadon on "Train Leaves Here This Morning" and "Earlybird."
